Knife winrm ssl verification


#1

Hi all

We want to be able to use SSL secured winrm with self signed certs and no
CA. To do this we need the knife winrm command to allow us to skip/ignore
SSL verification. At present the knife-windows plugin does not allow this.

I found a github pull
requesthttps://github.com/opscode/knife-windows/pull/50that allows
this and it works. However it requires updates to the
winrm https://github.com/WinRb/WinRM/pull/44 and
em-winrmhttps://github.com/schisamo/em-winrm/pull/9gems.

Both dependent gems have pending pull requests but haven’t seen any
activity for five months and a year respectively.

What’s the best approach for getting any movement on this? I’ll chase up to
pull requests on winrm and em-winrm. I can raise a ticket for knife-winrm
but the main issue may remain. If gem dependencies become unmaintained what
happens?

Thanks

Jim
